DIRECTOR: TONY Y. REYES
Aliens invade our planet and human race’s last hope is a shaky alliance of three heroes: Agimat (Revilla), Enteng (Sotto) and Ako (Santos). Will they settle their differences before it is too late?
- So John Lapus’ character transforms into a pink Hulk and the audience are suppose to find this hilarious.
- If Sisterakas is some kind of a Christmas bonus for Kapamilya fans, then this movie is for the Kapuso crowd – specifically, Eat Bulaga faithfuls. The Bossing humor, the Jose-Wally antics, Ryzza Mae’s popular dance moves and even the old and tiresome carabao English of Jimmy Santos is all for their fans. IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE IF YOU SIMPLY WATCH EAT BULAGA THAN PAY FOR A MOVIE TICKET BECAUSE THE EXPERIENCE IS THE SAME.
- Ultimately, this movie does not expect glowing reviews from critics or win several acting trophies, rather it aims to earn tons of moolah. Casting three of the biggest film fest draws in recent times, Revilla, Santos and Sotto is nothing but a ka-ching magnet. (Though, based on reports the trio was not able to dislodge Sisterakas from the top of the box-office.) I understand the male lead stars but Santos is a brilliant actress and popular movie star with a proven festival track record. I do hope she makes something better next time. She deserves it and we deserve it too.
- Product placement is one movie practice that I have made peace with a long time ago. Shockingly, I never thought I’d find myself wincing all throughout the Sun IDD scene. There a number of product placements in the entire film (since Santos and Sotto are top local celeb endorsers) but the Sun IDD is the most abominable.
- Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote at Si Ako prioritizes box-office earnings instead of focusing on character development and plot lines. True, movie-making is a business but it borders perversion if filmmakers disregard the more important aspects of a movie just to earn more. Indeed, this movie is an example of the grotesque declension of the MMFF to irrelevance.
